By Anil Ananthaswamy WHY can’t we be in two places at the same time? The simple answer is that it’s because large objects appear not to be subject to the same wacky laws of quantum mechanics that rule subatomic particles. But why not – and how big does something have to be for quantum physics no longer to apply? Ripples in space-time could hold the answer. The location of the boundary between the classical and quantum worlds is a long-standing mystery. One idea is that everything starts off as a quantum system,
